Consider Braces for Children

While it’s true that many situations where a child may need braces can seem ambiguous, there are a few hard and fast rules when it comes to considering the orthodontic treatment. Some of these rules include:

· Irregular loss of baby teeth

· Shifting jaw

· Involuntary biting of the cheek or roof of the mouth

· Difficulty chewing and/or biting

· Teeth and jaw that look strangely proportioned

· Teeth that are crowed or seem to be misplaced

If you’ve noticed any of these symptoms in your child, it may be time to consult with a dentist or orthodontist about braces. The benefits of braces are also numerous, and include positives such as these:

· Positive growth influence in the jaw

· Improved self-confidence and self-image

· Improved speech

· Improved ability to eat and chew efficiently

Again, these benefits are only a small number amongst the vast array positives when it comes to braces. Suffice it to say, braces can help your child enjoy a happy, healthy mouth for a long time.

If you think your child may benefit from braces, what do you do next? You should set up a consultation visit with an orthodontist in your area. Consultation visits like these can help you better understand how braces work and ways they can help your child’s specific situation.

Your orthodontist will walk you through a plan so you know exactly what steps you’ll need to take to finish the process. You’ll also likely receive cost information, so you can be as informed as possible.
